-by-one. the first one getting attention is chuck hagel for defense secretary. how big of a bat doll you think this is. where do you think it will play out? >> this is the biggest of the five nomination fights we know about. maybe a vote against hagel. few republicans, none come to his defense. few republicans might vote for him. he has a contentious personal background. hard, acerbic and hard to work with. more important than that is the record on the issues. opposed to iranian sanctions. he opposed the iraq surge. defended dialogue with hamas. refused to join in a letter calling on e.u. to condemn hezbollah. he had a pejorative comment to jewish lobby. he has taken stances that indicateed he is less than supportive of the relationship with israel. >> there are two key democrats that could factor in how this goes. one is new york democratic senator schumer. >> he is staying quiet on the fight. talk about the real oppositio opposition. i think there will be some tough hurdles to get over with republicans. but i don't think there is enough democratic fight to stop the nomination. out of loyalty

throw in your ideas. my idea is this. he picked chuck hagel after watching two or three weeks of him trying to be destroyed by the right wing. he let them hang fire. give me your worst about this guy. do it all and i'm going to stick it in your face because i want a guy that thinks like me. he may be a notch or two to my left. take it. is that a sign of willing to fight this time? >> i think obama is the type of guy who picks his fights. sometimes he comes out and goes for the bipartisan compromise. doesn't work. he'll flip and do a fight. health care. great example. he tried to cut a deal with republicans, tried too hard according to some people on the left. left out the public option. then when he had no deal, what did he do? he rammed it through using methods that republicans screamed about. he also has this other thing. he's really good at driving them crazy so that they go to the excessive. i want to know what you think about this. i think republicans attacking hagel, war hero kind of a republican, moderate guy. they're going to look terrible in the end. and i think obama basica
nominees. look at the chuck hagel nominee. they've been hanging them out to dry essentially. and for members of congress to have their opportunity to throw shots at them. it's been rather interesting and rare that the transition has been so bumpy, especially for a president going into its second term. but, look, there's still a lot of turnover going into the cabinet. even though the president announce three cabinet members are staying on for a while. who knows if that's going to be six months, a year, two years. we'll see if he's going to nominate more women. i do believe he'll be under immense pressure to appointment the secretary of labor to succeed hill da solis. i want to bring in charlie rangel. congressman. >> to see you as always. first black president. he's getting questions about diversity. are you concerned? >> of course, i'm concerned. any questions are fair and the record speaks for itself. >> if the record speaks for itself, what does it say going into the second term? >> it's as embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney. and we were

hagel knows all the folks in the upper chamber. two out of five weren't even there when he was. will his meet and greet help ward off the threat of defeat for his nomination to run the pentagon? and three is a magic number. it' it's the "the daily rundown"'s third anniversary. some surprises along the way. good morning from washington. it's friday, january 11th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. boy, three years? a different part, huh? let's get to my first reads of the morning. vice president biden will present his recommendations on gun violence to the president tuesday. white house officials say an assault weapons ban will still be an element of whatever final package is proposed, despite reporting to the contrary this morning. and while in a 15-minute statement for cameras yesterday, biden emphasized an emerging consensus around a set of what he called gun safety proposals. he did not mention the assault weapons ban idea once. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggests that we have universal background checks. i've never quite heard as mu
-- confirming vote or a vote to deny the confirmation of john kerry, you know, chuck hagel, john brennan, jack lew? >> well, fortunately, i'm going to be in a position where i'm on the armed services committee, and the foreign relations committee, so i'll get a chance to question both senators kerry and hagel, and i look forward to hearing them answer some of the tough questions that have been raised. that's what the confirmation process is about. >> do you have concerns about chuck hagel from what you know so far? >> you know, i think senator hagel deserves all of our admiration for his service in vietnam, for his service to the country as a senator from nebraska, and he would be the only enlisted man who has ever served in the military to become secretary of defense if he gets confirmed, but i do have some serious questions for him about how he would implement the amendment that i just put into the defense authorization bill to make sure that women in the military who are victims of rape or incest are able to access reproductive health services and get the same coverage that other women thro
's nomination of chuck hagel as secretary f defense have many preparing for difficult hearings. john brennan, nominated for the cia is expected to have an easier time. susan mcginnis starts us off. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, hagel is the tougher sell here on capitol hill. one of the big criticisms is that he is soft on iran. and now we have iran's foreign ministry saying it's hopeful his appointment will improve relations between the two countries. that's probably not going to go over well here where lawmakers and the president are gearing up for a fight. president obama announced his picks for the next heads of the pentagon and the cia. now they need congressional approval before they can get to work. >> we need to get moving quickly on this. >> reporter: senator chuck hagel is nominee for secretary of defense. a former enlisted man and vietnam vet, the president says hagel can relate personallyto america's troops. >> to this day, chuck bears the scars and the shrapnel from battles he fought in our name. >> reporter: but winning confirmation won
. but first, the battle is ratcheting up today over chuck hagel's nomination as defense secretary. here's former secretary of state colin powell on "meet the press." >> i think he gets confirmed. i think ultimately he's superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. and i think in his confirmation hearings all of these issues that you've raised, that others have raised, he'll be prepared to deal with. >> also new today, senator john mccain offering new insight into his concern about this nomination. >> what is his view of america's role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, in fact, it's bizarre. why would he oppose calling the iranian revolutionary guard a terrorist organization? these are legitimate questions that need to be asked. i honor his service. we are friends. but i have an obligation to the men and women who ar
first neocon fantasy. it's why the nomination of chuck hagel matters. the president is taking the bush doctrine and kicking it out the door. a historic stamp. joining me now is former congressman patrick murphy, democrat from pennsylvania. he's the first iraq war veteran elected to congress. and nia malika henderson, first, let me thank you both for being here tonight. congressman, you've been long for a pullout. we should have never extended it. what's your reaction of speeding up the withdrawal of u.s. troops? >> reverend, today is a great day for the american troops, but also to our country. the fact that the president's been very clear, we're accelerating the fact that we're bringing our troops home. thank goodness. we are shifting to a counter terrorism doctrine. we are bringing our troops home because they did their job. they took out bin laden. the longest war in american history, over ten years time, are coming home. i gave president obama credit because he had the guts to do the right thing. president obama did the right thing for american security and american troops. >> it i
reluctantly adopted that and it succeeded. senator hagel called it the biggest blunder since the vietnam war. >> someone that holds mourdock-esque. >> send you back to vietnam. >> let's get right to our panel now. the second hour of the cycle. i'm joined by krystal ball and toure who love to eat up my time period on this network. >> what's wrong with that? >> absolutely. i'm accepting you'll soon do that. krystal, we've heard just now about the resignation of hilda solis. it's just been announced. the president has responded and accepted her resignation. but how much does this resignation put pressure on him in terms of the diversity issues with his cabinet? because he's already been criticized for a lack of diversity. now we've lost another woman. >> his cabinet is looking pretty brotastic. it bothers me. >> i think it bothers a lot of people. >> i give the president credit. he has more women in his cabinet than say george w. bush. but. >> of course he did nominate two supreme court judges who are women. >> and we vould remember his first choice for secretary of state was susan rice, a woma
republicans threaten to block susan rice, and now that they're threatening to block chuck hagel, and now that they are scoffing at even the prospect of jack lew at treasury, there are two options for understanding what republicans are doing here. they are either just making noise to convince their base that they still exist, and the beltway is dutifully reporting it as if it matters, but it doesn't. all those nominations are going to be or would have been fine, or the other option is that republicans really are going to try to set an absolutely historically unprecedented bar against the president nominating his chosen cabinet in a way that has never happened before in u.s. history. they will block, say, a nominee for treasury secretary because mitch mcconnell once felt irked in his presence. if that is really what they are planning, keep in mind that the republicans' mandate for doing this is something that they think derives from an election that the president just won by a lot and which their party lost seats in both the house and the senate. so it's either total nonsense what they are
of those as the vice president. but chuck hagel, coal colin powell supposed to be on "meet the press" this sunday. does he have the political power to smooth the waters in washington, d.c.? chuck hagel being seen as a split from the neocon conservative leftovers. >> i do think colin powell lends credibility to the nomination of chuck hagel. but there are key senators like senator chuck schumer that will make a big difference. with regard to senator schumer, i cannot speak more highly than senator schumer. i was seeking the aim accusations when i was running as senator of pennsylvania in 2010. senator schumer called me and came in to philadelphia and met with the jewish literee leaders having understood having been in the military, we would have laid down our lives for the defense of israel. i went to the middle east with senator hagel and heard him talk about having the strength of having america defend israel. my take on end of the day, senator schumer critically will probably do what he did once for america, defend that that is best for national security interests. i think he's goi
. you take somebody like chuck hagel who has already signaled to the iranians he's taken off any military strikes in the event of them having nuclear capability, that this can't be the best personality we have. anti-israel and so forth. so not only did he ignore any women in the picks, he's picked people who are not qualified. >> when you talk about anti-israel, talk about what you mean. that's been disproven, john from here to sunday. >> what happened is chuck hagel is going back and changing history. first of all, he did go back and say he does not believe the right way ever to stop iran is to have any type of military strike possibility. now, you got to pressure remember, this is the same president who already took out the russians -- he was going to be more flexible negotiating missile defense. now somebody already is tipping off the iranians that he's going to be flexible on negotiations. second of all, chuck hagel was very, very critical of the israel and jewish lobbying in washington, d.c., said it was too aggressive. many in the israel and jewish community took that as a
a fascinating story regarding charles schumer. it seems that chuck schumer is the key to chuck hagel's failure or success. tell us why. >> that's right. and first we have to do happy friday. >> happy friday. >> happy friday. >> boy, do we need that. >> and this is a surprise. senator schumer has been telling his allies in new york, especially jewish groups, that would be, quote, very hard, very hard for him to support chuck hagel for pentagon head because of his positions on israel the other day. the real canary in the coal mine on the trouble that the hagel nomination has faced was on "meet the press" several weaks ago when senator schumer surprisingly wouldn't commit to supporting him. and usually when the president has a nominee, favorite nominee, a name out there, the number three democrat in the senate, chuck schumer, is going to say sure, i'll support him. he said he's going to listen for the hearings. and that's where he still is. just wednesday at a private breakfast at park avenue winter, one of those fancy restaurants up there, senator schumer was saying that he was very uneasy about
battle, some will be bruising, none more so than the president's pick for defense secretary, chuck hagel. those hearings could start as early as this week we're told by senate sources and the white house mounted a vigorous defense and hagel says his record on israel, iran and gays in the military has been distorted and the senate armed services committee, kelly ayotte says what worries her most is the reaction from iran. >> what i want to make sure is that iran is actually not hopeful, but they're fearful, as r ult of our nominee from the secretary of perspective. >> former chairman of joint chiefs and secretary of state colin powell gave his backing to hagel today then though then senator hagel was one of the largest critics of the iraq war, a war that powell helped sell to the american people. and hagel later tried to stop the surge in iraq, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since vietnam. >> superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. >> reporter: the president is gearin
and expend all their ammunition, if they have much, probably on chuck hagel. they may try to take them both out, but it seems to me, you can't litigate every single nominee that the president, who was just reelected, sends down to the hill. they are going to have 55 votes in the senate. it doesn't seem to me jack lew is going to be the one that they really make a fuss over, but we'll see what comes out over the next 48 hours and what they are saying once it's official, what sort of vibe and signals we get from the senate. >> jack lew and vibes. i want to open this up to our panel here. jen, you know, to some degree, the bluster from the republican party is now par for the course on basically everything. if the president announced he was going to have a tuna fish sandwich for lunch, i'm sure there would be outcry it wasn't chicken salad. >> if lindsey graham was nominated, i'm not sure he'd vote for himself at this point. it's become this big trend, that's unfortunate. take a step back, it is delaying the process to getting important nominees in place, and whether you're a democrat or republ
confirmation process for chuck hagel. we were talking a lot about this yesterday. also some other nominees as well. but you say the white house is looking forward to these fights. why would that be? >> no, that's exactly right. this is a real window into why the president made this tough choice of chuck hagel. and that is we talked to people around the white house who said that the president wants fights with congress. and there's both a short-term strategy here and a long-term strategy. in the short term, the president wants to take advantage of the fact that he's the only person in these negotiations who's not running for re-election. so he can afford to be tough. he can afford to stand up for what he said. second, simple contempt by the president. these republicans who lost to him so badly in 2012, in his view, just won't take yes for an answer. so there's a little bit of exasperation by the president. but pull back the camera, and you see the bigger strategy, which is looking ahead to the midterm elections in 2014. by picking tough fights with the hill, the president uses his office to
morning. controversial pick. president obama sets to nominate former republican senator chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense, a decision that is critics on both the left and the right. this morning, retired general stanley mccrystal weighs in, in a live interview. his first since he resigned amid controversy of his own. >>> alabama high school student is under arrest prepared for an attack against fellow students. a teacher uncovering the alleged plan in a notebook left in class. it was found at the suspect's home that has police even more worried. >>> and a father's concern. prince charles opens up about his son, harry's service in afghanistan. >> i worry every time. >> and he looks ahead to life as a grandfather "today," monday, january 7th, 2013. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with is savannah guthrie live rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i'm matt lauer alongside savannah guthrie, al roker and natalie morales. the gang is back together in a long time for a really long time. >> not since last year. >> that old t
with president obama like chuck hagel and jack lew and republicans delayed 85% of the planned relief funding for hurricane sandy. that, of course, drew a strong rebuke from republican governor chris christie. this is not politics devoted to a competing vision. this is politics devoted to digs corruption and obstruction, and those recent fights i mentioned don't even include the explosion of minority obstruction in the u.s. senate. the filibuster has been used against more of obama's legislation than any president in history. the bottom line is that the gop is exploiting what i think is a hole in our democracy. can you lose elections and still get your way now if you don't care about responsibly governing. of course, it's hard to get voters to notice this kind of thing, but i believe obama has a big opportunity at the inauguration. he can call for more than just broad patriotism or vague unity. he can call out the amorality of a political party that would rather threaten man made crises than actually gonchings avern, advocate for cooperation. i think it's worth a try >> the majority of republ
that jack lew will be a fight just as chuck hagel will be a fight, just as susan rice was a fight. the second problem for president obama is that so far his chosen bantd doesn't include any sisters, nor does it include any racial diversity. even members of his own party are expressing dismay. new york democrat charlie rangel called the lack of women embarrassing as hell and yesterday chairwoman of the congressional black caucus, marcia fudge wrote a letter urging the president to nominate two members of the cbc. bill, you are a former diverse member of the president's -- >> still diverse. >> yes. you remain diverse, though not sequestered at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, for which we are thankful. i wonder what you make about this contention that he is being too insular, a, in terms of the possibility of group think, people that have been with him forever, and then, b, how much is the diversity problem for him? >> well, i'll start with b. you know, i think that what we're seeing here is more of an optics problem than it is a real problem because by the numbers half of the white house
hagel and john brennan, because they have been controversial and have some opposition. >> well, first of all, with chuck hagel, you have someone who's decorated war hero, you have someone who served well in the senate, who has a lot of support from people. at the same time, you have senators who have legitimate questions. i think what's important here, andrea, we're finally going to have a hearing to have opportunity for the nominee to answer these questions instead of just having his name out there not being able to answer it. you've seen a number of senators that are open minded and give full consideration to his nomination. i was just concerned this kept going without a nominee, now there is a nominee for both positions and all of these concerns, as they should be, should be considered in the process. >> based on what you now know, do you think hagel will be confirmed? >> i have no chrrystal ball, i wouldn't have thought we'd be in the senate at 2:00 in the morning on new year's eve. i don't think anyone can really say, but i think there are a number of people who have been very op
of defense is chuck hagel. some have questioned his commitment. >> this is an in-your-face nomination by the president. >> it's difficult to imagine the circumstances in which i would support his nomination. >> reporter: besides the fight over his cabinet nominees, the president must deal with the country's fiscal mess. by tend of february, the treasury will lose the able to boar moe more money and automatic spending cuts kick in on march 1st. >> we're going to be talking about further deficit reduction. >> reporter: the president has also promised to take swift action against gun violence. vice president biden is heading up a task force. the group is considering universal background checks for all gun buyers. and stiff penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors. >> that's way -- way in extreme of what is necessary. it's not going to pass. >> reporter: and that reaction is from a democrat, so whatever president obama proposes will likely face major battle over gun control. >> tahman bradley in washington. thank you so much. >>> well, billions of dollars in flood
unkind things about gay people, by two men kissing, and-- >> what about chuck hagel. >> chuck hagel apologized. >> megyn: but he got passed for defense secretary and he says some guy was aggressively gay. >> my point is if somebody said i made a mistake in the early '90s, and i don't anymore. he got a raw deal. i don't think he went to the lengths of saying i don't subscribe to this. and substitute the word black for interracial marriage and all of a sudden, they wouldn't. and if you're in support of gay marriage you have to say this this is discriminatory. >> megyn: would the gay rights group say that no christian pastor, no muslim imam, i'm not sure where the jews stand on gay marriage. >> different-- >> and people of faith for a long time had an anti-gay stance. are we going to get to the point if you're a person of faith you cannot speak at a presidential inauguration. >> we're almost there, megyn. you have the world's great religions have, what according political christians, unacceptable positions or policy of positions, kind of getting to the point where christianity is an ea

today, president obama is expected to nominate former republican senator chuck hagel as defense secretary. republicans call him a controversial in your face pick. he criticized the iraq troops that opposed unilateral sanctions as iran and he once said that being gay impended effectiveness. there have been people on both sides of the aisle who have been mad about this. >> so what's the point? it's so weird, isn't it? >> that they've chosen him? >> yeah. both sides, neither side. sometimes you pick a republican that is bipartisan, but this is the one republican that most republicans -- >> he likes him for some reason. >> and it's going to be a battle. why do you like him? >> i don't like him. i don't know if i like him or don't like him. >> with all the act money and everything, why do we need a controversial pick for this? when neither the democrats nor the republicans seem to want him. it's going to be a protracted battle. >> i don't think you want to get in the middle of that. >> he served with valor in vietnam. that's part of why he's standing by him. but you would initially t

jack lew and chuck hagel continue to be targeted by republicans willing to block anything president obama puts forward. the gop's threat make an excellent case for why democrats must take action on filibuster reform. i'm joined tonight by howard dean, former governor of vermont and former chair of the dnc. governor dean, good to have you with us tonight. >> thanks for having me on, ed. >> you bet. is this just something harry reid has to do? i mean, if you look at taxation. >> yeah. >> if you look at gun legislation, how could any of this not get filibustered based on what we saw in the 112th? >> actually, the filibuster is designed to thwart the will of the majority. but the problem is not that, because our constitution protects the minority, which is a good thing. the problem is the republicans have made it in a farce. and basically, brought the business of the entire government to a halt. so that's why it must be changed. i'm not for getting rid of it, but i am for changing it dramatically so it can't be abused anymore there are some really important things that face this country
situation. you tell me if john kerry's right for the job. is he right for the job? >> yes. >> is chuck hagel right for the job? >> sure. >> should we discriminate against them? because they are right for the job. >> so you're suggesting that there are no women as qualified as men for these positions. >> i think the moment has to be right on a number of levels. and i think they're good choices. >> a woman as treasury secretary. there's an opening there. there's an opening at treasury, right? >> joe? >> yes, katty. >> is that photograph that's alongside "the new york times" article yesterday disappointing? of course it's disappointing. to see a roomful of men with the president. it would be hard to say that that wasn't the case, right? but i think if you look at what the president has done in terms of the supreme court and advancing to women there, that is incredibly important. >> hear, hear. >> in terms of -- >> why are you saying that -- >> -- for a long time. i would say as a woman, that's more important to me having three women on the supreme court. >> there you go. >> than perhaps having
